We stayed at Hook Thorn from 24 - 26 Feburary, 2017
Was a fantastic break - our accommodation was even better than imagined. Very tastefully decorated and the private pool was a treat
Lizel was very accommodating
Will definitely be back soon

Extremely comfortable, clean and private. Stay was too short. Will definitely go again.
The splash pool on the patio and dishwasher were an added bonus! The view of the dam is awesome.
Only down side are some of the roads in MPA that we had to travel on to get there. Lots of potholes.

The place is fabulous but it was not clean. Spider webs on the windows and doors and on a 2 days stay we did not see any cleaning staff. Despite that the location is fantastic and thehpuse is very very nice.

Good day Carlos
We are all privately owned houses. I have told the owner about your complain re spider webs and they will address the issue with the cleaners.
The cleaning staff do not come in on weekends unless specially requested by the guests.
Glad you had a good time.
Regards
Lizel
